The chemical classification of azapropazone
The names of drugs are often formed by combining syllables taken from chemical sources so as to produce chemical-sounding names which, however, lack the meaning they would convey in a systematic context. Thus aza, prop, and one are all well known syllables combined in azapropazone to produce what is really a nonsense-word.
